Gonzales Dodges Questions About Illegal NSA Spying

Our attorney general is supposed to uphold the interests of the American people. But yesterday Alberto Gonzales stood with his boss, the president, by refusing to answer even the simplest questions about the government's illegal spying on Americans.

From the left and the right, senators on the Judiciary Committee expressed skepticism and frustration over the lack of real answers from Attorney General Gonzales.

The administration's stonewalling is part of a pattern of abuses of power by the White House, and is a glaring reminder of the need for judicial oversight.

Americans across the political spectrum are demanding the truth about President Bush’s domestic surveillance program. Attorney General Gonzales needs to provide answers.

Please add your voice and join thousands of others concerned about our diminishing freedoms under this administration. Tell your Senators to demand thorough and impartial investigations into illegal domestic spying.


Congress must fulfill its obligation to the American public and fully investigate this matter.

Some Questions for Attorney General Gonzales:

* When the president says this program is ‘legally right,' which laws is he citing?

* Does the attorney general believe that the president, and not the Supreme Court, has the job of interpreting the law?

* How many Americans have had their conversations or e-mails monitored by the warrantless program?

* How much money has ended up wasted on inquiries into the private lives of innocent Americans?

* Are there any limits to the broad powers that the president has claimed?

Take action today. Respond to the inadequate Gonzales testimony by urging the Senate to order a thorough investigation of Bush's NSA spying program. Or, read more.


You can also call your senators at (202) 224-3121 and tell them your concerns about illegal spying on Americans.
